Kobe seems destined to join such classic Vegas status foods as prime rib, king-crab legs, and lobster tail. And what happens in Vegas never really stays in Vegas: Like a fun-house mirror, the city reflects and magnifies the nationís worst and silliest impulses.

But either way, you can bet very few of them will be hand-fed with chopsticks.
